#65 - Quentin Tortellini’s Arrival to Cinema
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
& Pulp Fiction (1994)
Tarantino does not belong in everyone’s wheelhouse. He is the only filmmaker to have his films be immensely popular as well as hyper-stylized and controlled. His first two films may be violent, shocking, and riddled with cursing white guys - but they are based on incredibly powerful and wholly individualized screenplays. His writing drives his characters, and his characters drive his films.
As a huge Supertramp fan, this made me really happy.
After doing some research, I learned the waitress posing as the Statue of Liberty (appropriately named “Libby”) on the album sleeve for Suprtramp’s 1979 album Breakfast In America is a woman named Kate Murtagh. The left is her on the album and the right is a photo of her today.
